AvP Definitive Edition

Posted by Darkness on April 25, 2010 (Updated: 21-Jun-2014)

 AvP Definitive Edition Alien vs Predator was first released in the UK in March 2005 which featured an Extended Opening in Antarctica. The two-disc version was titled ‘AvP: Extreme Edition’ which obviously had a lot more features. An Unrated version was released in the US in November 2005 which featured a few new scenes re-inserted as well as more blood in some scenes. (See AvP Theatrical vs Unrated for more info). Eventually, the Unrated cut made its way over here in September 2007 under the title AvP: Definitive Edition. This is currently the best version to get in the UK.

Region Comparison

The Region 2 Definitive set has 11 deleted scenes in total on the second disk. The Region 1 Unrated Edition has only three deleted scenes but one of them is exclusive to that region: ‘Miller Gets Caught’. In relation to earlier sets, there’s some DVD-ROM content missing from both versions about the Dark Horse comics.
